Qualitative aspects

Apart from the positive development of quantitative variables, also worth mentioning are several relevant qualitative milestones with regard to its market position as a reference supplier of automotive components.

One of these was its participation at IZB 2016, international trade fair for automotive components, which Fagor Ederlan has attended since 2014. Its presence at this event has produced very positive results, with more than 130 visitors and over 20 meetings with customers. Fagor Ederlan also had the honour of receiving a visit from the directors of the VW group, Dr Herbert Diess - Chairman of the VW brand - and Mr Ralph Brandstätter -Director of the VW Procurement Division -. During the fair, Fagor Ederlan presented its proposal for advanced solutions within all of its product lines, most notably among others being product weight reduction developments such as aluminium and bimetal brake discs, its latest developments in aluminium steering knuckles or HPDC aluminium engine blocks.

Another highlight was that of receiving the prestigious British Foundry Medal award. This award recognizes the work done by the team at the Edertek technology centre, published in 2015, regarding the development of materials and production processes aimed at reducing weight. A challenge stemming from the group’s commitment to innovation as a key element in its market positioning.
